Is the training day dead?

Gone are the days of traditional classroom-based training daysEmployees no longer want to sit through hours of impersonal and tiresome training, presented on miniscule whiteboards at the front of dingy meeting rooms.

Instead, they want updated training programmes that will build on their existing skills and enhance their company knowledge in a modern and stimulating way. Technology may have provided a welcome change to learning and development training, though there are discrepancies as to whether it has actually revived traditional training methods. The question remains, are traditional training days dying a slow death, or is there still a need for them?
